This is the card that my class of 3rd grader made for me.
They all signed it and put some stuff on it that they know I like. KU for example.
This was full of all kinds of chocolate and other candy that I love, but as the weekend went along, I decided to share some of my new treats with others. It is not so full as it once was.
After trying to get them settled down for the day, we did a little Math and then watched a movie. I always tell my class that the work comes first and if they didn't get it finished then we wouldn't get to watch very much of the movie. That was a great motivator for them. While my class was working, I got another surprise. Tom had a gift basket of assorted treats that I like sent over to my school from Dillons. He knows me so well. I am not a huge flower person. Don't get me wrong, I love flowers, but I just am not good about keeping them alive and looking beautiful for very long. So he sent my favorite sweets over. I was more than happy to share with my class since I had more than I think I can ever eat in a lifetime. But I saved the best ones for myself.
Afterschool, I picked up Jaycee and met Tom at home. When Tom got home, he told me to get myself ready and be thinking of where I wanted to go for my birthday. Of course I was thinking of a place that would be kid-friendly so that Jaycee wouldn't be too much of a distraction. He told me not to worry about that. He got a babysitter (our good friend Angela and her daughter Calla) to come over and stay with Jaycee while we went out. He also asked me what movie I wanted to see. It has been so long since I actually went out to see a movie, that I had to call the movie line to see what was even out.
So onto our date. It has been a while since it was just the two of us. We went to eat at this new place down the street from our house Fizz. They have the best burger that I have had in quite a while. I also loved their sweet potato fries. After being full from that, we went to see The Dilemma. This was a really funny movie that had lots of twists and laughs. It was a really fun and relaxing night. That is mostly what I wanted for my birthday. Just to enjoy being with my best friend, Tom and taking it easy.
This is the restaurant that we went to Friday night.
It's pretty quiet and quaint. It will be wonderful when the weather is nicer to sit outside.
It was a great 33rd birthday.
